re: Does LSU need to look at some Juco DL (Posted on 11/11/12 at 2:49 pm to Tiger79)
Don't really think we need to go after any Juco DL and other than the flirting with the Marquel Combs kid, we haven't even really tried to get any. There are a couple in MS JCs that the staff has had contact with but they are primarily backup plans in case Gilmore were to have gone UF(or if he still does). DE would've been the spot to look at but it appears we didn't even take a hard look at any of those.
I'm guessing the staff likes the young DE group of Rasco, Allen, Hunter and Maclin to go with the freshmen coming in. Herron and Neal both could play right away. At DT, I think Logan stays at this point but regardless Johnson and Ferguson can handle the starting duties and word is that the Brick loves Thomas. Mickey Johnson is a guy that I don't think really fits our defense but he can be solid depth and give some snaps. The hope is that Gilmore, Lawson or Bain(if he comes) can provide more depth. We'll have talent but it's going to be young and relatively inexperienced. Definitely a concern going into next season.
